Assumption School Academics
We have been investing in future generations since our founding in 1923 by the Servite Order, Sisters of Mary.
The Office of Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Denver mandates curriculum Assumption School. The Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools give parents confidence that their investment in a Catholic school education will support their child’s complete development and personal success. A rigorous, time-tested curriculum taught by committed faculty in a faith-based and nurturing environment results in measurably accomplished academic achievement.
Catholic teachings, faith, and traditions, are integral to a curriculum that reinforces what is taught at home, including virtues of discipline, respect, and responsibility which will provide guidance and inspiration as your child navigates life’s challenges.
Our curriculum is under constant study and revision as we become aware of new trends and teaching tools. Textbooks are to be considered tools to aid in the teaching of the curriculum. Additional tools include supplementary and reference books, I-Pad resources, Mimio/Smart Board technology, audio-visual aids, field trips, and computer lab resources.
All students receive Art, Music, PE, Spanish and computer classes along with their normal curriculum.
